Great location - really easy for local friends to come meet us. Great nightlife entertainment that you would expect at a W property. Steakhouse next door was fantastic. Service always seems to be on point at SPG properties - would definitely stay here again

I stayed here for one night. The service on the hotel is great. Easy check-in and every interaction with staff professional and pleasant. The bars and restaurants are also excellent. The rooms are tiny, not well sound insulated (can hear every conversation on the floor), a lot of night time noise until 2-3a, water pressure is very low. I am...

I always prefer staying at The Foshay when I am in Minneapolis - I enjoy the hotel itself, as well as the location. They have managed to keep a lot of the charm while also bringing in the W vibe. It's always fun to get drinks on the 27th floor - even if you aren't staying at the hotel. Highly...

I strongly suggest visitors move the desk or bed in front on the door. Housekeeping walked into my room 3 times within 7 hours. Take the Do not disturb sign and use at as a book mark as the staff does not care that its on your door. If its cold do not expect the doormen to assist with getting...

Very Nice rooms and great service. Concierge showed is some good places to eat and offered us a cocktail as soon as we got here. Bathrpom has a huge Rainfall shower, and the room also has a device to charge your phone. Worked out great because I forgot my charger.

We utilized the valet parking with cold weather but upon seeing the front fender in our garage the next morning realized the parking crew scraped a pole in their garage with our car. The broad white scrape on our black fender was nothing to miss! Of course no one pointed out the accident when our car was returned and we...

We were in town for a concert at Orchestra Hall which is within easy walking distance. Our check in went well but without the extras other reviewers mentioned. Obviously better if you're a SPG member. When I booked the room it was to have a city view which I always enjoy. Our view was the air conditioning units. Surprisingly housekeeping...
